J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink Mixing

J Herbin 4 basic ink mixing colors

After we wrote about mixing a few basic Noodler's Ink colors to create a rainbow of other colors, one of our helpful readers mentioned that the same thing can be done with J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink.

The equivalent of Noodler's Navajoe Turquoise, Shah's Rose, Yellow and Black (CMYK) in the J. Herbin line of inks would be:

Cyan = Bleu Pervenche
Magenta = Rose Cyclamen
Yellow = Bouton D'or
Black = Perle Noire

Thanks, Will, for pointing this out! Here at Writer's Bloc we decided it would be a good idea to have all of these J. Herbin La Perle des Encres Fountain Pen Ink colors available so we ordered Bouton D'or and Bleu Pervenche to add to our bottled ink collection. Now we're equipped for those of you who would like to give ink mixing a try with J. Herbin's popular and enduring fountain pen inks.
